Surprise 30th Celebration

UL Bohs and Ireland star Gillian Bourke recently back from the world
cup was taken completly by surprise when her many friends from all
over the country turned out to celebrate her 30th birthday which was
held in the Locke bar in Limerick.

Other Irish Internationals were also there, including Niamh Briggs,
Fiona Hayes, Lynne Cantwell, Nora Stapleton, and many more.

Irish Team beat the All Blacks

Phenomenal performance by the Irish Women's Rugby team last night who beat New Zealand 17-14. This was the first Irish international side to ever beat New Zealand in Rugby Union, and the first womens side to beat the Black Ferns at a Rugby World Cup since 1991. A fantastic achievement and huge congrats to all the girls and to Niamh Briggs who kicked the winning penalty.  

Highlights of the match can be seen here

Everyone in UL Bohs would like to congratulate Olivia Stapleton and Mike Essex
on their recent engagement.
